Born into an aristocratic Venezuelan family, Herrera's fashion sensibilities developed at the age of 13 when she attended her first fashion show. From her emergence as a renowned beauty surrounded by royals and artists like Andy Warhol, to being known as the woman who dresses women who know how to dress, Carolina Herrera has established herself as a fashion icon. Through the celebrated photography of Annie Leibovitz, Francesco Scavullo, Horst, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Mario Testino, as well as the words of friends, colleagues, and admirers such as Calvin Klein, Ian Schrager, and Bianca Jagger among others, Carolina Herrera is a portrait of one of today's most timeless designers.
